Abstract:
An experiment was carried out to study the effect of CCC on growth, flowering and yield of Nerium odorum cv. Rose Single at the farmer’s field in Keelaiyur village, Tharangambadi taluk, Nagapattinum district, Tamil Nadu. The treatments were comprised of different concentration of cycocel @ 1000, 1500, 2000, 2500 ppm and control was maintained by spraying with distilled water. The experiment was laidout in randomized block design with four replications. The results revealed that among the different concentration of cycocel used, higher concentration of CCC @ 2500 ppm-T5 recorded the maximum reduction in plant height, leaf area, early flowering and maximum duration of flowering. However, the treatment T4- CCC 2000 ppm recorded the increased number of primary branches per plant, secondary branches per plant, number of leaves per plant, plant spread, flower diameter, hundred flower weight, number of flowers per plant, flower yield per plant and flower yield per plot.
